AS THE star of the BBC’s sumptuous adaptation of Little Dorrit, fragile actress Claire Foy should be well-warned about the dangers of owing money. But it seems the 24-year-old newcomer (right) believes that out of sight is out of mind when it comes to the [pounds sterling]10,000 student debt she ran up before landing the plum role in the primetime show.

‘The loan I received at the Oxford School Of Drama remains unpaid,’ says Claire, whose father in the Dickensian drama played by Sir Tom Courtenay is locked up in a debtors’ prison. ‘It’s hideously large and I should do something about it now I’ve earned some decent money. But if I get sent a letter which says: “The interest on your student loan has gone up by [pounds sterling]500”, I just stick it in the back of the drawer. Perhaps not the ideal thing to be doing during a credit crunch.’
